The guys at replica maker Quantum Mechanix have a Halloween present for the Trek fans, by presenting a spooky video of John DeLancie, Star Trek TNG’s Q, reading Edgar Allen Poe’s "The Raven". Watch it below


John DeLancie reads The Raven

This video is the first of QMx new "Masters Series" of dramatic readings.

QMx are known as the makers of replicas from Star Trek, Firefly, Battlestar and more. But CEO Andy Gore tells TrekMovie that they want to do more than just be about selling things to fans, but also giving something back to the community. He hopes to do more "Masters Series" videos and is looking for feedback of what people would like to see, so sound off in the comments below.

By the way, if you are a fan of cool audio productions, you may want to pick up "War of the Worlds The Invasion From Mars (L.A. Theatre Works Audio Theatre Collection)", performed by Star Trek actors, including Brent Spiner, Leonard Nimoy, Gates McFadden, Wil Wheaton, Armin Shimerman and more….all directed by John DeLancie. You may also want to pick up some of the "Alien Voices series" series of radio dramas with DeLancie and Leonard Nimoy.

John deLancie’s voice is very cool for this sort of thing. Nice job, QMx!

That was AMAZING! Bravo!

Man, what is it with SF actors finally making me pay attention to the classics? :)

Q is better than I.
Here be the proof.

#2 Star Trek is basically Shakespeare (which is basically the classics updated) in Space. Each episode is like a play…
Ever wonder why they call it a “screen-play?”

7. Vultan - October 28, 2010

Excellent performance! And very appropriate, don’t you think? Since Q was something of a raven taunting the Enterprise crew. Hmmm… I wonder if someone could make a Trek version… “Never more, warp core.”


8. CarlG - October 28, 2010

@6: True, that! I just meant works like this, and the version of Hamlet with David Tennant and Patrick Stewart are the one that make me sit down, shut up, and pay attention. They “click” with me better now than they did when I had to read them in english class!

Would’ve been cooler if at the end he had snapped his fingers and turned into a raven and flew off.

People might also be interested to see Nevermore : An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe, played by Jeffrey Combs… I had the luck to see this play this summer and Mr. Combs was excellent to the point I forgot it was him and had the impression that Mr. Poe himself was on stage :)

*rapturous applause*

12. I'm Dead Jim - October 29, 2010

Thank you, QMx! That was awesome! Now where are those smaller scale, more affordable Star Trek ship replicas I heard talk about more than a year ago?

13. Cranston - October 29, 2010

De Lancie’s looking mighty Klingon in that thumbnail up there.

14. Polly - October 29, 2010

13. woah thats exactly what I thought too!

15. RobertZ - October 29, 2010

I miss Alien Voices. An outstanding series.

16. DS9 IN PRIME TIME - October 29, 2010

I love Q

17. Commander Keen - October 29, 2010

Amazing performance John! Bravo!!

18. Anthony Thompson - October 29, 2010

Apparently QMx is busy making videos instead of the new Enterprise model which was promised…and re-promised…and re-promised! C’mon, QMx, where is your credibility?

19. TJ Trek - October 29, 2010

I love Poe, I love The Raven, I love Q I love John DeLancie. need I say more?
